    I'm sure manufacturers of diving equipment could put the technology to good use for oxygen readouts and communication ect.

    Hell yes. Digital temp display sitting inside a res.

    Pretty cool tech, still whenever I see something that is kind of useless other than for the sake of making it. I always feel that effort could have been put in elsewhere.

    Hi - this is Michele Ricks from Kodak's OLED Systems division. Thank you so much for the great story about our technology - we engineers just LOVE being referred to as "awesome." Kodak people have a special love for OLEDs, since our scientists invented the technology in the late 70s.

    We are really excited to be working on flexible OLED tecnhology. We can envision a future with so many unique applications. One of the key challenges to bringing flexible OLEDs to the market is encapsulation, to prevent moisture damage. Kodak's OLED R&D team is developing new encapsulation technology to work with flexible OLED's. While we are not specifically investigating or targeting any underwater applications at this time, the team thought it would be interesting (and fun) to conduct our "Fish Tank" test.

    Oh, and before I forget - these displays are capable of many colors and even full-color video. This was just an early effort and green is relatively simple to make :) Stay tuned for more developments at www.kodak.com/go/display and http://michelericks.pluggedin.kodak.com/rss.asp?id=DC7F07BA-A91E-408A-B9C3-CF63CC4D865C.
